This reminds me of a trip out there many many years ago a friend and I went out Nov 3rd with 4 inches of ice on snowmachines and no snow to speak of. You could see the bubbles below the ice which freaked me out LOL.

FIshed all day and never caught a fish. Around 6 PM some finlander decided to come out with his 66 Impala car. We never stuck around to find out what ever happened to him. :)

Theres five inches of good black ice out here. Bring your ice cleats, pretty bare in spots if you're walking out

I can attest to that. We were around the island straight out from the launch, both sides and in front. About 7" of solid ice. Lots of Pike.

Any decent sized pike in there lately? Wondering if it's worth looking for some with dead baits and tip-ups.

26"-28" was the biggest we got. All around that size though.

Heading there on Saturday. Bought a new shelter and wanna try it out. My plans are head out a hundred yards or so from the public launch and start there. Will post what thickness of ice I find.

Didn't make it out there a nasty chest cold decided to hit me. Yes a truck went through and he has a go fund me page trying to get money for a new truck. Imo it was a dumb move driving a truck out there yet. They are ok and hopefully learnt a lesson unfortunately the hard way. Use your head and stay safe out there
